The event kicks off on the evening of Wednesday 16 November 2016 at the Le Plaza Hotel with an invited poster session and networking cocktail followed by the Workshop Dinner and the 2016 LRI Innovative Science Award ceremony.
This evening session will be chaired by Nicolas Cudre-Mauroux from Solvay Award. He will introduce 2015 LRI award winner Dr Alice Limonciel of Innsbruck Medical University who will present the results of her study to establish thresholds of activation for stress responses pathways and ligand-activated receptors for chemical classification.
This will be followed by the presentation of the €100,000 2016 LRI Innovative Science Award to Dr Wibke Busch from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research who will outline her plans for her winning project: ‘Determining key events and mechanisms of action by genome wide profiling of molecular responses related to toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic processes as basis for AOPs for major environmental pollutants.’
On Thursday, 17 November the workshop venue will be The Square in Brussels. This main workshop session will consist of a morning plenary session covering the impact of LRI research in the following key project areas:
- Environmental methodology of mixtures and residues
- Grouping of nanomaterials
- Dust and workers exposure
- Dermal absorption modelling
- Eye irritation alternatives
- Epidemiological evidence of Endocrine Disruption
- Epigenetics normality
After Lunch a thematic panel discussion on ‘AOP and Genomics: how useful, how to address risk, and where next?’ will be chaired and moderated by Prof Ian Kimber of the University of Manchester.
